Supplemental Pump Purchase

The LID 19 and LID 15 Boards have voted to approve the purchase of 12 supplemental pumps to provide an additional pumping capacity of over 80,000 gallons per minute. The supplemental pumps, together with the existing permanent pumps, will double the total combined pumping capacity at Steep Bank Creek (up to 160,000 gallons per minute ) this year.

Delivery of the supplemental pump is anticipated in June 2018. The pumps will be stored at the Steep Bank Creek pump station site and will be trailer-mounted so that they can be moved to alternate locations within LID 19 or LID 15 if necessary. An announcement will be posted to the websites once the pumps are delivered.

In addition to the supplemental pumps, both LIDs have undertaken measures to implement after-action recommendations. Please visit your LID website to see what has been approved to date.
